After the panel presentations and discussion, Women in Cognitive Science will host a speed mentoring session for one hour following the model used with great success in previous meetings. Junior researchers, assistant professors postdocs, and Ph.D. students, both female and male, who wish to participate as mentees must register in advance at:

Note that for the purpose of this event we consider anyone beyond the first years of an assistant professorship or research institute position to be eligible, so both mid-career and senior scientists are invited to be mentors. WiCS will then pair mentees with mentors based on area of research and the type of institutional affiliation (e.g., large university, research institute, small teaching college). The timing will allow a maximum of two mentor-mentee sessions of 20 minutes. In brief, the program will link junior faculty with senior faculty to meet briefly (for 20 minutes). The speed mentoring session will be held in part over an APS- sponsored reception where coffee and pastry will be served. There are several ground rules that include: 1. This is a one-time session (i.e., the mentor is not signing on for a longer-term mentoring relationship); 2. The mentee should come with a specific question or two to guide the session and make the most of it; 3. The mentee should send the mentor a CV and the question(s) ahead of time, but not expect that the mentor will have read this information prior to the meeting. The workshop will occur the afternoon of Thursday 23 March from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm and the mentoring session from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm
